It's that time of year again - leaves are falling, the mist is creeping in and pumpkins are sitting waiting to be carved for another spooktacular Halloween.
So far, so familiar. But what if you added an extra edge to your fright fest this year, and carved the best pumpkin lantern on your street? For the sake of art, obviously.
Think of these comical orange veggies not as gourds, but as canvases - there for you to wreak your artistic talent upon with a range of fairly sharp kitchen tools. Will you create a Mona Lisa? Or an elaborate gothic castle?
In case you need some inspiration on how to up your game, we've compiled 101 of the most impressive pumpkin carving ideas for you in this glowingly good gallery.
